    Jean (male) was terrific. He has great knowledge of Paris and was very adept in providing an informative tour with good humour. The only downside was that he forgot to give us the champagne that we’d paid for. Mind you, I forgot to ask for it to.

Outstanding!

One of the highlights of our trip to Paris. The driver was exceptionally informative and interesting. The route he took us on was ideal. The Montmartre area was so interesting and beautiful and the driver told us 2 hours worth of fantastic facts. We were picked up and dropped off where we requested. The car was fun and we had many opportunities to take photos. We were taken to places we would never have seen on our own and told so many stories along the way. The driver was happy to converse with us and answer any questions we had. We could not recommend the company, the driver and the route enough. 100% perfect.

Absolute top of our short visit to Paris

The 3-hour Citroën 2CV tour, in an original "duck" in a mint-green lock, was a great decision - which did come at a price - was a lasting experience. In real terms, the price is absolutely okay - it's just not a hop on hop off bus. We would particularly like to commend the trip, tour and acquaintance with the original Parisian Guide & Oldi fan, who showed us many interesting locations across Paris that we would never have seen otherwise. Unfortunately we forgot the name - best regards & Merci beaucoup!

Perfect way to see the main attractions and some unknown treats

Driver/guide was excellent. The car got a lot of attention. The tour was great - the obvious sights but also some hidden gems which has now given us a taste of other parts of Paris to explore. Great value.

Excellent trip and guide, well worth it but good to do at start of trip as we did it at end and seen so many places to go
